Episode 157 – Valar Morcrapis

Since Game of Thrones seems determined to lose half their viewership, The Nerdstravanga gang decides to discuss what’s gone wrong. One’s never watched it to begin with, one’s stopped watching this season, and one’s still faithful. Can you guess who’s who before listening?

Close enough, right?

Infinite Loop #1

Infinite Loop #1

Infinite Loop #1 starts out as our heroine calmly jumps through time, righting the temporal wrongs of a mysterious, off-screen terrorist organization. She looks awesome doing it, and the banter she shares with her handler is great. This one is off to a great start, even if it does suffer from a lot of first issue issues.

Transformers Combiner Wars: Windblade #1

Transformers Combiner Wars: Windblade #1

I think there are some properties that just don’t translate well into comic books, and while I may hate to say it, The Transformers may be one. I never would have believed you if you had told me a comic dedicated to two combiner Transformers wailing on each other would have been a “miss” for me, but here we are. What little story is told here is weak and forced, the characters are taken to ridiculous extremes, and even the fighting is somehow unexciting. Diehards fans may be into this, but it’s not a good place for anyone new to jump on.
